June Creative Inking Blog Hop. Showing Off The Pretties.

Creative inking blog hop

Thank you for joining in this month's Creative Inking Blog Hop.  My favorite product (I have many) from the new catalog is the Large Letters Framelits.   I want to share a half box to store cards and then coordinating cards made with the new Large Letter Framelits.  I will share how to actually make the half box in tomorrow's post, so come back to get that information if you want the dimensions and how to.

Card box

I plan on placing postage stamps on one side of the cards and writing pens on the other side to fill up the planned open spaces.  The sand dollars were stamped using the Picture Perfect stamp set with Versamark.  It was heat embossed using copper embossing powder.  I used a piercing mat and end of a piercing tool on the back side of the sand dollar to make it stand out and look realistic.

Below are two cards I am making for the half box.  I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to frame the letter.  The half box holds eight cards and envelopes nicely.

By The Shore Designer Series Paper was used for the cards on a Very Vanilla base.  The paper was mounted on Calypso Coral before placing on the base.  A wonderful gift presented in the half box with stamps and writing pens. 

Come back tomorrow for detailed instructions on how to make the half box.  Thank you for stopping by.  Click to the next blog to see what Sandy has for us.  Always wonderful!
